Day at Rickmansworth

I visited Rickmansworth today. We took the Chiltern Line train from Harrow-on-the-Hill to Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, an "old-World" village. Following a good lunch in the Pennsylvanian pub, we ambled towards St Mary's parish church.

Pennsylvania is the American state founded by William Penn who, at one time, lived in High Street, Rickmansworth. Penn died in 1718, and was buried at the Friends Meeting House, Jordans, near Rickmansworth.

Thence we walked to the Aquadrome, a former quarry and now a bird sancuary with several lakes.

Rickmansworth? Isn't that twinned with Juan les Pins? Or am I thinking of Lurgan?
